Preview: World on Fire “Grammy” Show art work paintings

Trent Reznor (NIN) by Travis Louie

Angus Young (AC/DC) by Shawn Barber

Madonna by Lori Earley

Art and music have always been intertwined. Whether it be Jay-Z including one of Murakami’s paintings in his music video “Blue Magic,” KAWS collaborating on an album cover with Kayne West, Good Charlotte’s Joel Madden collecting Luke Chueh paintings, or Dave Cooper creating a music video for Danko Jones, the examples seem endless.

One of these intersects will open next week with the “World on Fire” show at the Pacific Electric Lofts in LA where many well-known artists in the Low Brow and/or Contemporary Art genre were asked to paint portraits of even more famous music stars. In honor of the Grammy Awards opening on Feb. 8th, the show was curated by Kris Lewis, Justin Giarla (Shooting Gallery) and sponsored by with the auctioned off works as well as prints benefiting the Pea Pod Foundation.
